Actually, I don’t like guacamole, called guac in the United States, but I went to the competition anyway.
Guacamole is a Mexican dip or spread made of avocados sprinkled with herbs and lime. The name is a Spanish variation on the Aztec name and pronounced in Mexican Spanish as “wakaˈmole” in American English as “ɡwɑːkəˈmoʊliː”, and in British English as “ɡwɑːkəˈmoʊleɪ”.
Avocado is a fruit that comes from Central America. Botanically, it is recognized as a large berry containing a single large seed known as a "pit" or a "stone". Today, avocados are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world.
There are a number of health benefits of avocados, but other fruits or vegetables have them too. Avocados are too oily for me, so I eat them very occasionally. Here are some promoted (but are they proven?) benefits of avocados: prostate cancer prevention, oral cancer defiance, breast cancer protection, eye health.
Guacamole competition was organized by TechTown Detroit.
The first place in the professional category judged by jury went to Estaban Castro of Esto's Garage. The first place in the professional category judged by the public went to Joel and Alvaro Padilla of El Nacimiento. In the amateur category, Jessie Blount won the first place judged by judges and the public.
